Helmet Cam: Multiple Lines Working on Two Heavily Involved Structures in Stockton California

Another video out of Stockton, CA. In this video you see crews arriving on two well involved structures. Command quickly up graded this to a second alarm when it was discovered that two single family homes were involved. A Quick primary was attempted but due to heavy fire, an odd layout and debris in the home, they were forced to pull out and go defensive. After getting lines to the fire, they were able to re-enter and finish the primary. This is a great video that includes the initial 911 call and all radio traffic. Crews were able to get this under control in about 30 min. This video come to us from StocktonFireHistory Originals. A description is below:

Stockton Firefighters responded to a 2nd alarm structure fire on Lever, on the morning of July 7th, 2018. The fire engulfed two single-story single-family houses, multiple sheds, and debris in both yards. Though the video capture primarily focuses on operations in one of the structures- Firefighters conducted various operations throughout the fireground. From the very first 9-1-1 call, Stockton Firefighters were able to completely extinguish the fire within 30 minutes.

The video capture primarily follows one of the firefighters designated to search and rescue- entering one of the houses on fire at great personal risk and without a hoseline, in order to ensure that all occupants are out of the structure. Firefighters frequently were required to overcome debris, cars, and other objects to maneuver attack lines. Firefighters all over the fireground worked multiple hoselines to extinguish the flames. Two firefighters were injured on this fire, but have since recovered.

There is a lot to ‘unpack’ in this video capture. We did our best to provide captions to follow our operations. Some operations occur and there is not enough time for captions; please pause if you need additional time. This video capture and fire audio has been edited to best provide a narrative of the actions that firefighters conduction on a regular basis. We thank you for your views, support, feedback, and comments.”
